Compound Information

Uranium is a common naturally occurring and radioactive substance. It is a normal part of rocks, soil, air, and water, and it occurs in nature in the form of minerals, although not in metallic form. It is a confirmed human carcinogen, and is used in nuclear power plants and nuclear weapons. Very small amounts are used in photography for toning, in the leather and wood industries for stains and dyes, and in the silk and wood industries. It is absorbed by the body via inhalation, ingestion, skin and/or eye contact. As a radioactive substance, it is also hazardous by proximity.
